WHAT IT IS: Afro-pop singer Joeboy broke big across Africa after aligning with Mr Eazi and his emPawa Africa talent incubator in 2019 for “Baby” and “Beginning,” his first two solo singles. Topping Apple Music’s streaming charts in Nigeria, Uganda and more, Joeboy kept the momentum going with 2020’s “Nobody” f/Mr Eazi and DJ Neptune, which hit #1 in Nigeria and was the third-most-shared song globally on Triller. Since releasing his 2021 debut set, Somewhere Between Beauty & Magic, Joeboy has dropped tracks including “Sip (Alcohol),” which garnered 360m+ streams and topped Apple Music charts in 17 countries.
